Editor's Review of the Beat
The T-Mobile Beat is an affordable entry-level smartphone from T-Mobile. The phone is made easy to use thanks to a QWERTY physical keyboard, making use of integrated socialising apps such as Facebook and Twitter a breeze.
The T-Mobile Beat features a 3.2MP camera which, although not mind-blowing, is more than can be said of some of the latest tablet devices out there. The in-built FM Radio and MP3 Player amount to a decent setup for you to plug yourself in and zone yourself out.
The Beat has strong connectivity options as well, giving users internet access through 3G, GPRS and WiFi, making it easy to always stay connected. The integrated Bluetooth makes the transference of files and the not-so-spectacular photos that you take with the phone nice and simple too.
All in all, the T-Mobile Beat is a pretty basic handset that's got the welcome bonus of having a full physical keyboard and pretty zippy internet access on it. For the modest PAYG price of £59.99, it's not bad value, although it doesn't match up to the insane value you get for the £50 Android-powered ZTE Kis.
awful fone worse fone ive ever had screen freezes and as for touch screen u need a hammer to access the menus lol :)
I purchased my Beat 11.03.2013, three weeks later my phone would not charge, I was given another charger. Today (27.4.13) I tried to charge my phone and the same thing it will not charge.
only had my phone 3mths wont even turn on now
not a bad little phone and unbelievably good for the money, I bought it in asda for £19 and it comes with a free £10 top up voucher, meaning you get a smart phone with 3g, wifi, etc etc for just £9!
